    First off, glad I can be a member of this cx community to take advantage of all your knowledge. I have read tons of threads about stators, CDI, pulsars, etc. Perhaps so many I've got myself mixed up. I know some threads show the ignition system test results, talk about Ignitech, etc. I just...

    Hi guys, As some of you may know I had an issue a while back with my cx500 intermittently dying whilst running at higher rpm, this was put down to a dodgy stator. First thing I did was replace the CDI with an Ignitech unit, which means there were a variety of stators at my disposal now... I...

    I know the Yamaha YFM80 coils can be used to replace the originals on my CX500, but I've recently seen a listing for 2 others I hadn't seen before. One is listed for a CX500 and is part no IMC0009. The spacing looks correct, and it's twice the price of the Yamaha ones. But not having to add...

    So I know a few things going into this problem, I'm looking for suggestions of how to proceed. Bike is a 78 CX500 standard. 1) I've checked for spark and the engine doesn't spark on the right cylinder until 2k rpm. 2) I performed the online stator test and everything passes besides the RH low...

    Hello CX fans, Looking for anyone that is willing to part with their ignition coil bracket out of the parts bin. I believe the one I am looking for is off an 82' I included a picture with this post. Happy and willing to pay for shipping and a couple extra bucks to get you to and from the post...

    I'm in the process of purchasing an original owner 1983 cx650 custom, it looks great and everything vital works. It has a misfire in the right cylinder, rendering it unsafe to drive (tops out at 40mph not to mention the risk of piston damage). I called my local Service Honda and the ingnition...

    Hey guys, searched for a similar thread but couldn't find anything so I hope this hasn't been answered too many times. I'm pretty new to fixing my own bike but am willing and pretty eager to learn. I'm assuming the problem is electrical, I've had my uncle who is a mechanic come and have a look...

    I trying to diagnose poor revving with my bike I realized my left spark is not firing. After a shortish test ride the left side exhaust wasn't near as hot as the right so, I pulled the plug and checked for spark. No go. I did the CDI Ignition test and my results for 3, 7, and 9 were low. also...
